Metaballon Anapauetai

When I was ten, my father held me on his shoulders above the crowd
To see a train draped in mourning pass slowly through our town
His widow kneeled with all their children at the sacred burial ground

And now we drink our coffee on the run, we climb that ladder rung by rung
We are the daughters and the sons, and here's the line that's missing


- "Stones in the Road", Mary-Chapin Carpenter

Plus ca change, plus c'est le meme chose.
